It's Tuesday, so that means grab a chair it's time for Virtual Coffee with Amy @ Lucky Number 13.
What are you drinking this morning? Is the weather gorgeous where you live too?
If you were over today I would invite out to my deck and we could have some coffee. I usually drink mine with milk and sugar in a mug as big as my head. Or something like that.
If were at Starbucks I would order a Iced VENTI Americano, no water, light ice, 4 raw sugars and half and half. Essentially it's an iced latte with a BIG KICK! Do you switch over to iced coffee when it gets cooler or stick with hot? I'm kind of in between. Depends on my mood.
One thing is for sure though......after all my barista years at Starbucks (did you know this about me?) and making frappucino after frappucino, I can't drink them. Refuse to.
Today is my 2 year Anniversary.
We actually have two anniveraries.
April 3rd and May 7th.
April 3rd we got married by my grandpa in Chicago. My elderly grandparents were not going to be able to make it to Arkansas for our wedding. I didn't want them to miss out. They are way too important in my life. So my gramps, who is a retired baptist preacher married us. In the family room.

(I know I've shared this pic before, but I love it so much!)
Our second (original date) May 7th, was a small wedding with immediate family and a couple of friends. Also my hubby's birthday.
And since life is so short, why not celebrate both dates?
Hard to believe that much time has gone by already.
You can read our LOVE STORY here.
(Both pics from our honeymoons.)
Mr. Jeter- I love you so very much and can't wait to spend a lifetime with you.
You are definitely the flip to my flop, the peanut butter to my jelly and the best dang BBQ'er I know.
You also look really cute in overalls :)
Happy Anniversary #1
Ok, moving right along.
This past weekend I went to a Pinterest Craft Party at church.
Did you read that?
A PINTEREST CRAFT PARTY!
All the hours I have spent pinning away, wishing I was crafty- it all came to fruition.
And it was a blast!
Here are some of the ladies that showed up.
Sorry about the blurryness.
The theme was based on t-shirts. So girls were making necklaces, bracelets and even reuseable bags from the t-shirts. IT was so cool.
There were some really craft and talented girls at this party.
I neglected to take pics of the sewing machines lined up, or the delicious snacks and beverage there.
I think somebody called the snack a "mookie"?
The combo of a muffin and a cookie?
I thought it was like a softer cousin to a scone.
It was chocolate chip, so I would have loved it no matter what.
And the drink was water in glass pitchers with strawberries, mint leaves, lemon and lime.
It was so appealing to the eye and definitely my taste buds.
Have I told you that I'm not really crafty? It's true. I have to MAKE myself be crafty.
For so long I have wanted to unleash the craft girl within and get busy.
And here is the outcome.
I made these.
With my own two hands. I was shocked!
I had help with the pink rosette on the green necklace.
Then I went to town and was a crafting fool.
Now all I want to do is make necklaces.
It was SO MUCH FUN!
Thank you BNC girls for putting that event together.
It was awesome!
Have you done anything crafty lately?
Thanks for coffee!
Have an awesome day!
